BBC Weather forecaster Alina Jenkins noted that Italy and Greece will see some of the most turbulent weather. Both countries have received amber and red warnings due to storms. Ms Jenkins suggests the thunderstorms and heavy rain could turn “violent”.

Elsewhere in Europe, things remain relatively dry with some outbreaks of rain.

Ms Jenkins said: “We have had amber and red warnings for thunderstorms for Italy and Greece this weekend.

“It is all tied up with this clump of cloud which has been bringing torrential rain and gusty winds through the southern half of Italy.

“This risk now transfers to Greece as we head through Sunday.
